    Take notice that on June 1, 2017, Ryckman Creek Resources, LLC

Docket No. CP17-459-000 a prior notice request pursuant to sections 
157.205 and 157.213 of the Commission's regulations under the Natural 
Gas Act (NGA), as amended, requesting authorization to perform certain 
activities at its natural gas storage field in Uinta County, Wyoming.

observation wells; (iv) re-enter and re-complete a former oil 
production well for use as a saltwater disposal well; and (v) construct 
related connecting flowlines, access roads, and appurtenances. Ryckman 
states that the proposed project will have no impact on the storage 
field's certificated physical parameters, including total inventory, 
reservoir pressures, reservoir and buffer boundaries, and certificated 
capacity. Ryckman estimates the cost of the project to be approximately 
$6,500,000, all as more fully set forth in the application which is on 
file with the Commission and open to public inspection. The filing may

the regulations under the NGA (18 CFR 157.205), a protest to the
